There is a new breed of women in Australia — loud, foul-mouthed and uncultured. They are called "ladettes". Following Ladette To Lady, the highly successful British series, eight of the worst kind of Australian ladettes are sent to the other side of the world to improve their manners.
It’s the start of a new term at finishing school and the teachers and staff are preparing for the arrival of the new students - eight Australian ladettes. After the disgraceful arrival of last term’s Aussies the teachers are leaving nothing to chance. This time the vice-principal, Mrs Shrager, is waiting at the airport to chaperone the girls to the school premises under her supervision. It’s a bus ride she would rather forget.
It is the second week of term at Hereford Hall and after the appalling behaviour and expulsion of one of the ladettes the teachers are determined to instil manners and discipline into these brazen women.
